The Famagusta region
Famagusta district or Ammochostos in Greek, is located on the Eastern coast of Cyprus and is a region rich in history. This land, dotted by windmills, is the main potato producing area on the island and is known as 'Kokkinochoria', which means 'red soil villages'.
The major town in the Famagusta region, Paralimni, is centred on an attractive square lined with shops, cafes and a picturesque church. Here you will find a good range of shops, tavernas, restaurants and bars, which are worthy of exploration. There are also a number of large supermarkets in the town.
The popular holiday resorts of Agia Napa and Protaras provide excellent facilities for anyone who loves the sea and water sports as well as great nightlife.
Places of interest include:
The old town of Famagusta – frozen in time since the Turkish invasion.
Agia Napa – old fishing harbour and the mediaeval monastery
Cape Greko – for its beautiful sunsets, great snorkelling and diving and the nature trail through its 390 ha National Forest enabling you to get away from it all.
Sea Caves – for spectacular coastline where arches and caves have been carved into the limestone cliff faces by the sea.
The villages of Deryneia, Sotira, Liopetri, Frenaros and Potamos Liopetriou - interesting for their handicrafts, churches and traditional celebrations.
Regular boat trips are run, enabling you to see Cape Greko, Protaras and Famagusta from the water.
The Protaras / Kapparis area
The Protaras area, which stretches along the east coast from Kapparis down to Cape Greko, is well known for its beautiful beaches with miles of golden sand and its glassy clear waters. It is best viewed from Prophet Elias church, which sits atop a hill 100 metres above Protaras town and can be reached by climbing the 300 steps that lead to it.
Protaras is a family oriented resort with many tavernas, restaurants and bars offering a wide selection of choice and, if one is seeking to party all night, Ayia Napa is 10-15 minutes away. At the centre of Protaras is Fig Tree Bay where the water is so clear, you can actually see the fish swimming by and there are plenty of water sports to try.
At the northern end of the resort, Kapparis has all that you need for a truly relaxing holiday. Here you will find numerous coves which are perfect for bathing, the most well known being Fireman’s Beach. There is a selection of shops including a bakery, supermarkets, bars and restaurants that open all year round, making this the ideal location for a holiday at any time.
No matter what season you choose to visit Protaras, there is so much to do and see. Summer it is the ideal season for swimming, sunbathing and a whole range of water sports. Autumn is the time for excursions to villages and vineyards for wine tasting and you could even enjoy the traditional cheese making. In winter the Troodos Mountains and the ski resorts are perfect. During Spring, the countryside is breathtaking with the beautiful fresh green meadows and flowers in bloom. This is an ideal time for nature hikes.
Due to its exceptionally good weather and location, the area offers holidays that will suit all ages and types of visitors; from families with small children to those who look only for privacy.

The nearest airport is Larnaca, which is about 45 minutes drive away although it's only about 2 hours from Paphos.
Flights to Larnaca are available from the national airlines (BA & Cyprus Airways) as well as lower cost carriers such as Easyjet, Monarch and Thomas Cook. Our current favourite is Aegean Airways, who fly from Heathrow and offer great quality and value. Flying time is normally about 4.5 h.
Alternatively, sometimes the major airlines such as Lufthansa offer special low rate return fares, particuarly in low season.

I have spent two weeks in October 2011 in Chara Cypria with my wife and son 3yo. Should say it is a great place for families. Nice, clean and cosy apartment on the 1st floor with large terrace (street view), quiet surroundings, 10-15 minutes on foot from the Fireman's beach. It is not large but not overcrowded. Local supermarket, several pubs and restaurants are in a few steps. There are no large amusements or attractions around but if you want to just take a car or taxi to get to Protaras (6km) or Agia Napa (10km). We have rented a car for all these two weeks and have no regrets about - it's worth it. Parking place is right by the entrance. If you want a lots of people on a large sandy beach with aqua sports etc you may go to Fig Tree beach in Protaras - 10 minutes drive.
Many thanks to Andy and Glynis for hospitality and arranging acccomodation
